Friction Friction Opposes relative motion (sliding friction or kinetic Opposes friction) or the tendency for such motion to start (static friction) (static Friction results in a force opposite to the direction Friction of relative motion of Force is parallel to the surface and perpendicular Force to the normal force N Surface Friction... Friction is caused by the “microscopic” interactions Friction between the two surfaces (intermolecular bonds form and break): form The best we can do is make an approximate model The for this complicated situation for Model for surface friction Model The heavier something is, the greater the The observed force due to friction It also depends strongly on the material and It surface: Kinetic Friction surface: f k = mk N µ k: coefficient of kinetic friction. Units? coefficient Direction: parallel to the surface and opposite Direction: direction of motion. Sliding friction Sliding ma j K K K Nf on b F iK ff on b W W=mg N2: Nf on b=W (v>0) (v<0) Quick problem Quick Block is sliding down an incline plane at Block and angle α (with friction).

(~40% energy savings/mile). (~40% Fish Schools Fish By swimming in synchrony in the correct formation, swimming each fish can take advantage of moving water created by the fish in front to reduce drag. created Fish swimming in schools can swim 2 to 6 times as long as individual fish. Terminal speed Terminal Consider a skydiver falling in air At first her velocity will be zero- no air resistance, At initial acceleration is g initial As she speeds up, the resisting force increases as well, As until it becomes equal to the weight of the skydiver until W = fd mg = Dv 2 At that time the acceleration becomes zero She has reached “terminal speed” She “terminal mg vt = D Summary Summary Kinetic Friction: Opposes relative Motion f k = mk N f £ ms N 2 Static Friction: Opposes direction relative motion would start Air Drag Opposes relative motion Slow: s fd = b v Fast: f d = Dv Terminal Velocity vt = mg D ...
